I love Olive and June's and go fairly regularly.
This last trip disappointed me as I had gone online to check out the Pre Fixe menu and chose to go for this menu, having shared it with all of my guests. We had 7:30 reservations and the Pre Fixe menu was already gone. Very disappointed!

The service was exceptional. Our waitress was knowledgeable and very pleasant. The chef was accommodating to a special request and even visited the table. Very professional and friendly staff. The food was better than the reviews (and the reviews set a high mark). Great experience.

Fabulous food and fantastic service. Our waitress was Nicole, and she had some great drink and food selections . Try the cheese plate and watermelon salad and we had four different pasta dishes and all were excellent .

Olive&June continues to exceed our expectations. If you are just looking to "give them a try" go to Happy Hour. Great value and there some exceptional items on the HH menu. Outside of the HH menu, I cannot recommend the Farm Egg highly enough - IT IS FABULOUS!!!

Visiting Austin from NYC and hoping to find excellent northern Italian. This was it. We all loved it and it's close to residential neighborhoods. Everyone was lovely and most of all the food and wine were all fantastic!

I have been to Olive and June before and the meal was good.
This dinner was a birthday celebration for my husband. when we arrived, I told the hostess that it was his birthday and picked a dessert I knew he liked.and she failed to tell the waiter. He asked for our dessert order at the end of the meal. I had to track him down so we could get the cake I had requested. He brought us some gelato to make up for the dessert confusion.
The entree for one of our guests was not correct and she did not receive her dinner until after we had all eaten. The wine selection was really good and the waiter was very knowledgeable about the selection. The wine he recommended was very good.

I booked a table for 16 for my birthday and had a great experience leading up to the event. I was informed ahead of time that a "family style" menu would be mandatory, which I wasn't too excited about (was skeptical of the quality) but agreed to. Our waiter didn't do the best job at walking us through the menu, and when the food started coming out, people were clearly still wanting more at the end of each course. Considering we were 15, the amount of food was not enough, which is very disappointing since nobody was given an option to order their own meal but having to pay the steep price of $40 without drinks or dessert. I hope that going forward you will do a better job of accommodating big groups. Olive and June is one of my favorite restaurants, but I was really embarrassed for some of my friends to walk away with empty wallets and hungry stomachs.

A wonderful experience on a perfect night in Austin. Food is very well presented and is wonderful in taste. If any comment needed, food is on the heavy side. None of us could finish our meal.
We chose to sit outside on the patio deck, adorned with misting fans under a 200-year-old Oak tree; an incredible site. Service was overwhelmingly excellent by our server.
Yes, put Olive & June on your Austin "must" list.

My first time here. Started with the Cheese Platter. Then moved on to the Farm Egg and it was amazing! Not into pasta too much and the GF option was nice but I think next time I'll try something not pasta. The sauce was really good though. Our waiter was very helpful with the menu, making suggestions and helping with decision making and just overall fantastic!

Olive & June was fantastic! Wanted a nice dinner with a good friend to catch up and they didn't disappoint. Great recommendations from the Server (Stephen) on food, and the Sommelier (Chantel) was right on the money for what we were looking for. The space, the service, the food & wine was all awesome. I will definitely be back.

Had a wonderful meal and excellent service. It was a little louder than when I've been there other times due to a group of about 100 women at the upper deck.
The server was very knowledgeable about all the items on the menu, and just the right amount of attentiveness.

With all the great choices for dining in the ATX, we chose Olive and June for our 19th Wedding Anniversary dinner because we knew we'd have a great experience and a great meal at a fair price. Even the valet offered to let us know "if we needed anything". :-) Nicole our server was wonderful and the whole staff takes care of your every need. That's service, the setting is quiet and cozy--we dined inside, even with the misters and fans, we'll wait till fall--I said 19 years and we're not youngsters. The food is the real draw for us, always fresh, fun and creative with a variety of flavors, colors and textures in every dish, plus they have a great wine list and Amaro. They comp'd us dessert and a glass of bubbly for the LoveOfMyLife to cap off a great evening.

Food was very good. Service from waiter and bar was slow, careless and disinterested. Finished plates were not cleared from the table after numerous trips by by the waiter. Drink orders were slow to be taken and slower to arrive. Water glasses were only refilled after the check was taken. Waitress was more interested in chatting at the bar than taking care of the table. We would've stayed longer and ordered more if we'd gotten any service.

Lovely evening! From the moment our server Maryosha introduced herself to the end of the evening this meal was perfect. The food was served promptly and she was sure to describe the dishes she placed in front of, us. I started with the sublime farm egg polenta, the followed that up with one of the specials from the evening, a DIVINE ricotta gnocchi.
When you do go, please ask for Maryosha as your server, she was an absolute delight and quite knowledgable about the menu and wines!

Made reservation purposefully at 6:15pm so we could sneak in some happy hour items - waitress did not seem to like that idea. other than that food was great and ambiance was exquisite. will say every single item (meatballs, steak, pasta) was WAYYYYYY over salted. We had to drink a lot of water but overall it was still good. Just the chef needs to take it easy on the salt or at least sample his stuff before sending it out. Fast service. Nice place.

The best restaurant in Austin. Our server, Maryosha was fantastic, all of the food was expertly prepared (compliments to Chef Rupp and the entire boh staff from the entire party), and the cocktails were perfect. An excellent experience through and through.

I have been to this place several times. And have had the same issue. In my defense, It's close by and I know other people have approached the management and owners with the same issues. I keep thinking they will address. On the plus side, their bartenders know how to mix a fantastic cocktail. Truly some of the best in town. I'm not a big drinker but I do like a good cocktail now and then. Another plus, always great hostess. Ours was Maddie I think. On the negative side, the wait staff (other than the tall s/p haired guy) are so incredibly interruptive. It's almost as if they purposefully show up at key points of conversation to interrupt. Very rude. Additionally, very limited menu choices. Add some frickin meat people or be vegan. Seriously, choices include a steak, plain pasta or clams or rock shrimp? Where's the food. Portion size? I really expected more than 10 angel hair noodles for my entree. And forget dessert. We had a choice of gelatos. Seriously, that's it. We said screw it and went to Teo's. These complaints go for Parkside too. These people do not know how to run a restaurant. Find another place if you want to be able to have a conversation, a meal or dessert. Not worth wasting a rare evening out for this crap.

We were dining very early (6 pm) and we were the first ones seated on the patio. It was a lovely environment and evening. I would definitely recommend highly to anyone looking for a beautiful and hip place to dine.

This was a birthday celebration and it was on a Monday night. It was not extremely crowded because it was a Monday night so the service was outstanding and the value was excellent because on Mondays the wine is half price. The food was cooked perfect to everyone's satisfaction. It was not very noisy however I could see on a weekend night when the place is crowded it could get noisy. There are three levels of seating and I believe the third level would have a nice view at night. At the completion of the meal, they provided one of their deserts with a lit candle to honor the birthday which was nice as not all place would do that.
It appears there is only valet parking as I did not see anywhere to park unless you are willing to park in the adjoining neighborhood and walk a distance. It was a lovely dinning experience and I would recommend this place to everyone.

Olive and June's doesn't disappoint. The cheese board had a great variety of local and house-made cheeses and accompaniments. Bread had great texture and chew without hurting your mouth on the crust. Coconut sorbet was subtle and really refreshing. Service was well spaced never leaving us without refills and a quick checkup and not being in our face. Very nice and courteous.

I took my parents there while they were visiting Austin & it happened to be my birthday. From the drink we had outside on the deck, the ambiance inside, the appetizers (pork meatballs were amazing!!!), and then the entree, everything was so yummy and a perfect fit for the evening. Our waitress was lovely, helpful, and attentive. Overall, it was a great evening/experience!
